The Royal Hotel
Introduction: In it's 148th year this historic Mornington pub has housed the Duke of Edinburgh and hosted the Prince of Wales
Ambience: Pleasing old style Feels like the 1950's
Food: Fairly extensive menu of typical pub food and salad bar. Orders from the 'kitchen', delivered to the table by attractive young staff. The beer batter did nothing for the excellent cape whiting and the chips were soggy. The battered prawns were fresh and crisp. The Mud cake was good value at $5.50
Wine: Good range of modestly priced wine by the glass.
Price: Slightly above average - about $65 for two
Comments: Nice for a Sunday lunch.
